Is Lymphoma Cancer A Hereditary Disease?
My mother was sentenced by a lymphoma cancer doctor, this disease does not show symptoms as I read on the internet. Lumps in the neck, armpits etc. were not in my mother’s body. I ask, can the disease decrease in children ?? And what is the most visible or perceived sign that is not too late to handle it? thanks.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. In fact this is the reason why patients should not fully trust what is written on the internet, but rather use the information only to find out the initial steps, or to discuss with doctors. Because in reality, it is not certain that someone experiences every symptom that exists in theory.
But we also cannot tell you exactly where the diagnosis came from because we did not have your mother checked. If you're curious, you can ask the doctor who diagnosed your mother with the disease, where the diagnosis is based on, and why the doctor thought that way even though the symptoms are not specific. Our guess, he got this diagnosis from investigations such as biopsies, or other laboratory tests if the symptoms are not visible at all.
Then for whether this disease can decrease, people who have family members with cancer will have a higher risk for experiencing similar complaints, but not necessarily. So say for example someone who has no history of cancer in his family, can develop certain cancers with a probability of only 1 in 1000. But if he has a family member with cancer, the chances are increased to 1 in 400.
For your next question, the signs of cancer are very diverse, and even if we tell you about the signs of lymphoma cancer, that doesn't mean you are protected from lung cancer. If we tell you about lymphoma and lung cancer, it could be that you experience bone cancer instead. Then it is not effective to detect cancer only with symptoms.
So that treatment is not too late, all you need to do is check all the discomforts that you feel, which can not be handled alone, to the doctor. And keep returning to control until the disease is cured. In addition, regularly do a general check up at least once a year. Every half year will be better. Meanwhile, maintain health by avoiding cigarette smoke, regular exercise, increase consumption of vegetables and fruit, and maintain ideal body weight. So, hopefully answering your question.
